Look at each image or record comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images or records and compare the information about the individuals listed to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind there may be more than one person in the records with the same name and you will want to look carefully at dates, places and relations to identify your ancestor from another person. You also may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name if they were known by a nickname or changed their name from the original birth record name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life and may be listed in records with any of those variations.

What is in this Collection?

This collection includes records of alphabetically arranged cards from 1600 to 1900. Card indexes may be handwritten or type written in pre-printed cards. These records are written in German.

The collection also includes some baptismal, marriage, and death records from the Evangelical and Catholic churches, as well as church book duplicates.

This collection indexes over 95% of the christenings, marriages, and burials that took place in Stralsund between 1600 and 1900.

This card file, created by the Stadtarchiv Stralsund, was initiated in the 1930s and completed about 1980.

There are several sets of card files as follows:

  • Stralsund Marriages
  • Stralsund Deaths
  • Burials for the St. Johannis church
  • Voigdehagen Births

These indexes were created from the church books of the various parishes in Stralsburg and Voigdehagen:

  • St. Marien
  • St. Nikolai
  • Heilige Dreifaltigkeit (Roman Catholic)
  • Heilgeist (Hospital church)
  • St. Jürgen (Hospital church)

Beginning in 1875, civil registration books were also indexed and include records for a small amount of Jews residing in the area. The original books indexed by the card file are located in the Stadtarchiv Stralsund in Germany. In 1616, a resolution required all parish clergy to keep a separate book to record names and events which took place in their parish district.

Look at each image or record comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images or records and compare the information about the individuals listed to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind there may be more than one person in the records with the same name and you will want to look carefully at dates, places and relations to identify your ancestor from another person. You also may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name if they were known by a nickname or changed their name from the original birth record name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life and may be listed in records with any of those variations. To search the collection fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination.

  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching vital records in the country.
  • When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family.

  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, Now What?

  • Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either German Civil Registration records or German Church records may be more useful.
  • While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.
  • Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
  • Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation.
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well.
  • Search the indexes and records of local genealogical societies.
